Call of Cthulhu – Supped Full with Horrors Part 1

It’s 1613 A.D. when a stagehand has gone missing from the Globe Theater and his wife has demanded his fellow actors find him. The trail leads from the Mermaid Inne to Islington and back again, but why was the man taken away and what secrets does the Globe hold that he was also investigating?

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This time, I ran the original scenario “Supped Full with Horrors,” continuing one character from “The Pirates of Candle Cove” two years ago and two others from last year’s Elizabethan game “The King of Shreds and Patches.” We played on Sunday, June 25, 2017 but the recording was accidently turned off so this audio is cut into two parts. My players were Helen, Ambralyn, Kyle, Ashton, and Collin.

Cthulhu Dark Ages – The Vampire of Schwarzbrunn

In the winter of 998 A.D., priest and his guard came to the village of Schwarzbrunn in the Holy Roman Empire. A message had been sent to the bishop the summer before about missing and murdered children. The culprit was thought to be a blood-drinking monster. It had been misplaced and lost for several months before a priest was sent to investigate. Would the two be able to solve the strange mystery or was the village doomed?

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This year, I ran the Cthulhu Dark Ages scenario The Vampire of Schwarzbrunn by Stefan Franck from Worlds of Cthulhu #1. We played on Saturday, June 10, 2017. My players were Ashton and Collin.
